what temp for bio bait?

Recommended Posts

What temp water does one need to soak bio bait in. Went out today on storm lake in iowa. tried soaking bait in puddle of water on ice while drilling holes and rigging other pole. bait did not soften up enough to put on hook. Just wondering if need to soak in warmer water? I let some pieces soak for half to three quarters of an hour but they never soften up enough to place on hook.

Well we are learning!! You did the right thing by soaking in lake water or distilled water, It works better if you put them on the dash of the car. The warmth of the defroster speeds up the soaking process! I always add water and put them in my shirt pocket, by the time I get to the water they are ready to go ! Thanks for the question !

I soaked mine in the Otter... on the floor... with water I got from a drilled hole. It took about 15 minutes, till the Ice Bits got soft enough to hook on. Yep, they'll soak faster in a warm truck.

My recomendation is to put water in the bag and throw it into your shirt pocket. Your body heat will aid the process... but, 15 minutes can not be rushed. The stuff has to soak to get soft. Once soft it can be frozen. Keeping it in your shirt/coat pocket is gonna be the rule to keep it thawed.

    • So did Minnesota!  24,060 troops if I remember the number right.   This is where General Lee threw in the towel on July 4th.  This 24 mile road tour is pretty amazing.  Glad I stopped.   Just a shot to the left of the High Water Mark.

    • @leech~~   My buddy Abe has a lot hair but was nice enough to try the hat at Gettysburg.  
    • And after Oakland its the Yankees! After this Mets series they must have a thing for being intimidated by NY logos on hats.   Wish we could get Buxton back but looks like he will be out for a bit now. I think he brings a lot of energy in the field and on the basepaths. Would like to see him pick it up at the plate more but he certainly brings an edge to the team that I think the other players feed off of.   Early on the team was deep and with a big division lead you could afford to shuffle out players and let the starters rest and heal. And those players were all stepping up. Now the lead is almost gone and injuries are piling up.   Lots of errors and un-earned runs have been ugly lately. We have seen Baldelli stay pretty composed so far this year. I will be curious to see what will cause him to snap or how he will handle all of this from a managing aspect.    Still a lot of games left which I am not sure if that is good or bad lol. I hope they make some moves but also dont want them to give anything up.
    • Yeah, with Oakland in town & on a roll, it could be a long weekend.
    • Does anybody have any experience with Wirelessbuy Unlimited Hotspot Mobile for internet service? I remember seeing it mentioned here a while back, but can't find the post.  I live in a rural area and my only options for internet are pretty much satellite or cell service. Two years ago, Verizon flat out lied about their home internet service to get me to sign up, my contract is finally up.  Is WirelessBuy Mobile actually unlimited Hotspot, meaning there is no data caps, no throttling, etc? This would be hooked up to my router and used as whole home internet. Maybe someone has a better recommendation?
    • Certainly looks like more  of a Saltwater feature, what with requiring an external add on device.
